Request for adoption
Shortcut:

This page is for requesting to adopt a wiki (if you are not a bureaucrat).

If you are already a bureaucrat on the wiki simply go to Special:ManageWiki (on your wiki) and uncheck the "closed" box to reopen your wiki. Wikis that are set to private cannot be adopted due to privacy reasons! You must be a registered user to adopt a wiki (or to post on this page).
Please remember to:

  • Talk in a calm and respectful manner
  • Give us details

For other global issues please see: Stewards' noticeboard

To add your request, click the "Add Request" button below and enter the details asked.

citypedia.miraheze.org

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: citypedia.miraheze.org
  • Username: Lois
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I want all cities of the world in one place (Miraheze). Of course I would keep updating :)

Lois (talk) 15:06, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

@Lois: A steward should be by in a few days to a week, at most, to re-open the wiki. At that point, you will generally have at least a week to constructively edit the wiki, after which a steward will then assess your activity and decide on the adoption. Dmehus (talk) 17:07, 14 September 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Sorry I'm just answering. Okay, I'm good, and I will not disappoint anyone. And thank you so much :) - Lois (talk) 12:18, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
@Lois: Sounds good. Yeah, as I say, the wiki will first need to be reopened by a steward in the next week, then you will actively edit the wiki for at least a week, and when that's satisfied, rights are typically granted by the steward shortly after that. Dmehus (talk) 12:23, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
@Lois: Sorry for the delay! The wiki has now been reopened. -- Void Whispers 02:07, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
@Lois: To add to what Void said, now that the wiki has been reopened, you can now contribute to the wiki, and after a week or so, he (or another steward) will assess your activity and grant rights if the adoption request is successful. Dmehus (talk) 14:34, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Oh, that's why I'm not a bureaucrat! I understand! :) I will be active all the time :) And thanks Dmehus :) - Lois (talk) 14:56, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
@Lois: Yeah, as long as you show some sort of activity, like writing a few content pages, fixing grammatical mistakes, translating pages (which you love to do), etc., I suspect @Void: will grant you bureaucrat rights in the next 1-2 weeks. Dmehus (talk) 15:14, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Yes! I really, really want it! :) I so like this Meta Miraheze wiki and the wikis too and I love being here. But I think that this has already been revealed :) - Lois (talk) 15:30, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

@General I80: Thank you for your request for adoption. A steward should review your request in the next week or two, and re-open the wiki. At that point, you will have at least a week to constructively contribute to the temporarily reopened wiki, so that a steward can assess your adoption request and, if satisfied, grant you bureaucrat rights on the wiki. Dmehus (talk) 03:43, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
@General I80: Sorry for the delay, the wiki has now been reopened. -- Void Whispers 01:58, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: happy.miraheze.org
  • Username: 팰로우 부캐
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to make a wiki about humors and comedy programs In the world. Animations and movies also included. In a word, "It is a wiki about all informations of humor." Thank you. Also I will edit some several things in that wiki I want to adopt.

팰로우 부캐 (talk) 00:35, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

@팰로우 부캐: You requested other name. Isn't it? --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 00:39, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696: Yeah, but he said I should better to request for adoption. ㅡ팰로우 부캐 (talk) 01:07, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
@팰로우 부캐: No, You requested mallnyun.miraheze.org again. And that request is declined by @Dmehus, Please talk to Dmehus first. Thanks. Gomdoli4696 (talk) 01:29, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
@팰로우 부캐: Thank you for requesting to adopt this wiki. I will {{ping}} @Void: to this thread to reopen the wiki, allowing you to constructively edit the wiki for at least a week. After that, Void will assess your editing and, assuming you've made sufficient content improvements or additions to the wiki, grant you bureaucrat and administrator rights on the wiki. Regarding your mallnyun wiki, since it's essentially the same thing as happy wiki, my preference would be to see this adoption through, but am not opposed to creating that wiki instead. Dmehus (talk) 01:59, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: umm...thank you for your passion. then can I adopt happywiki if there is no problem, I'm sorry that I'm terrible at English. ㅡ팰로우 부캐 (talk) 02:10, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@팰로우 부캐: Well, John undeleted your wiki, so now it's just a matter of @Void: reopening your wiki. At that time, you will be able to edit this wiki for at least a week. After at least a week of constructive edits, @Void: will review your edits and grant rights per a successful adoption. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:47, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
OK. I hope him to allow my request. thank you for your passion. thank you ㅡ팰로우 부캐 (talk) 04:11, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

australiasim.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: australiasim.miraheze.org
  • Username: Stranger195
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: The only bureaucrat suddenly disappeared, and many in the Discord server support me becoming a bureaucrat

Merry Christmas from stranger195 (talkcontribsguestbook) 12:09, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

@Stranger195: This is X mark.svg Not done simply because this wiki is not dormant. If the local bureaucrat is inactive and incapable of assessing your local permissions request, you may hold a local permissions election, though it must be done on-wiki (not on your Discord server). It should comply with either (a) any local permissions elections in place or, where none exist, (b) global permissions election customs, conventions, and policies. In the former case, you should link to your wiki's local permissions election rules. In the latter case, typically this means that your permissions election request should specify (a) the type of position being elected, (b) the number of position(s) to be filled, (c) the names of all candidate(s) running, and (d) the required minimum support ratio for success and/or number of participants required to express a view. In addition, it should run for at least seven (7) calendar days. It should also specify whether no participation results in election by acclamation, too. When this local process has concluded, you may return to Meta, to stewards' noticeboard, and request a steward assess your election in absence of a local bureaucrat. Hope that helps.

  • Wiki: remyth.miraheze.org
  • Username: Jakeukalane
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: Want to change some things of organization of the wiki and also fix links, categories, etc.

Jakeukalane (talk) 11:39, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

@Jakeukalane: Thanks for your request. A steward will review this request in about week's time (give or take), assess whether the wiki was manually closed (ineligible, by steward convention) or closed pursuant to Dormancy Policy (eligible), and reopen the wiki. After that, you'll have at least a week to contribute to the wiki, after which the steward will review your activity and grant rights if successful. Dmehus (talk) 11:48, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
@Jakeukalane: Sorry for the delay, the wiki has now been reopened. -- Void Whispers 02:01, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Within several weeks, they will review your contributions, and grant you bureaucrat rights on the local wiki if successful. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 23:31, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

marveloustvshowepisodes.miraheze.org

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: marveloustvshowepisodes.miraheze.org
  • Username: Waldo
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I want to revive the wiki so that anyone can share episodes from television shows they like, in a friendly manner. I know some people may want to use a wiki like this at some point. I will add pages and edit existing ones if my request is accepted.

Waldo (talk) 05:03, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

@Waldo: Thank you for your valid adoption request. A steward will review your request within the next week or so, after which they will reopen the wiki, allowing you to contribute constructively for one or more weeks.

geopolitik.miraheze.org

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: geopolitik.miraheze.org
  • Username: Isle
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No.
  • Reason: The person who made this wiki is no longer affiliated with the wiki and has stepped down. We are starting it back up again and would like to get it adopted

Isle (talk) 19:48, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

@Isle: First, thank you for your adoption request. However, it was somewhat malformed. Please note that the Miraheze subdomain, not the custom domain should be used for adoption requests, and, additionally, there is no need to add an additional section header. Second, regarding your request, thank you for your valid adoption request, assuming this was the intended wiki. A steward will review your request within the next week or so, after which they will reopen the wiki, allowing you to contribute constructively for one or more weeks. Within several weeks, they will review your contributions, and grant you bureaucrat rights on the local wiki if successful. If that was not the correct wiki, please do advise of the correct wiki. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 20:07, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
@Isle: The wiki has been reopened. -- Void Whispers 02:04, 1 November 2020 (UTC)
@Isle and Isleee: (not sure which of you to ping). Is there still an interest in this request? -- Void Whispers 22:10, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

  • Reason: Hello Admins, I would like to request for adoption of my wiki. For some months during lockdown, I was too busy to manage my organizations and other activities. Now, I am unable to edit my wiki. Please respond accordingly.

ShobhitSharma (talk) 10:21, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

@ShobhitSharma: Hi, if you'r eare bureaucrat on your wiki, you can reopen it by visiting Special:ManageWiki on your wiki HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 11:07, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

@Jclem05: Sorry, this is X mark.svg Not done for a couple reasons, namely because this wiki does not exist and thus this cannot be undertaken but also because this wiki would be the reverse wiki of a negative Reception wiki that was manually closed and made private by a steward for systemic Content Policy and Code of Conduct violations.

@Wilkins and Spongebob Guy: If you are bureaucrat, you can go to Special:ManageWiki and uncheck "closed" box for reopen your wiki. HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 05:05, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
@Wilkins and Spongebob Guy: Yes, as @HeartsDo: mentioned, I have confirmed that you are the sole bureaucrat and administrator on your wiki, per Special:ListUsers. Thus, all you need to do is click this special page, and reopen your wiki. If you can kindly let me know when it's been reopened, I will mark this request as handled locally. Dmehus (talk) 15:43, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

viacomcbs.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: viacomcbs.miraheze.org
  • Username: Monstermon
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I am currently a bureaucrat on the ViacomCBS wiki over at Fandom and I received a message on Discord that one of my friends, UpnCBS06 created this. However, I responded very late to this and now I want to adopt this and make it activate again.

Monstermon (talk) 00:58, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

@Monstermon: Unfortunately, this is X mark.svg Not done as this wiki is only inactive, and not closed per Dormancy Policy. You will instead need to reach out to an existing bureaucrat, including @UpnCbs06:, and have them make you a bureaucrat on the wiki. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 01:04, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus:, The UpnCbs06 account is currently inaccessible for me, as in, I can’t login into that account. I apologize if I’m interrupting this (now-closed) request, but since I can’t access that account, it means that I have a inability to respond to their request. This is my new account to avoid the login issues. Paramount1106 (talk) 02:23, 5 November 2020 (UTC)
are you unable to login due to technical issues? Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 03:38, 5 November 2020 (UTC)
@Zppix: Yes, do you have any suggestions? Paramount1106 (talk) 03:43, 5 November 2020 (UTC)
@Paramount1106: If you can email me with the following to zppix[at]miraheze.org:
Username:
What happens when you try to login: Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 05:42, 5 November 2020 (UTC)
@Paramount1106: Do you have a registered, confirmed e-mail address attached to your @UpnCbs06: account, or, alternatively, have you confirmed this account as the legitimate alternate account of the UpnCbs06 account from the UpnCbs06 account? In the case of the former, you can reset your password. In the case of the latter, it should be possible for a steward to transfer your rights to your new account, provided you can link to a diff that confirms this. If neither of the case is true, it will be very difficult for system administrators to provide you access to your former account unless you have some sort of personally identifying information on your UpnCbs06 account, otherwise, they have little to no reasonable way of ascertaining whether your accounts belong to the same person. So, your only other option would be to organize a local election on your Viacom CBS Wiki, lasting 5-7 days, then you would return to stewards' noticeboard, link to your local election on the local wiki, and a steward will assess your election. Your local election should state position(s) to be elected, number of position(s) to be elected, required minimum support ratio, and whether or candidates are elected by acclamation, taking into account any local permissions election rules as may exist. Dmehus (talk) 15:00, 5 November 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus:, This account belongs to the same person as UpnCbs06, meaning that it is used because there were difficulties logging in on the old account (as I mentioned in a previous comment here). Anyway, about the Stewards page, I might try to leave a note there, since, if it’s to be approved that the adoption requester receives rights, then I thought that I should mention this. Paramount1106 (talk) 04:33, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
@Paramount1106: Unfortunately, for security reasons, we require you to have confirmed from @UpnCbs06: that @Paramount1106: belongs to the same person. So, unfortunately, it looks like you'll need to conduct a local election on the wiki for at least a week, or do not edit the wiki until it is marked closed by the system. At that point, you can start a new adoption request, and a steward will assess your adoption request within a couple weeks. For future reference, you should really consider adding a confirmed, registered e-mail address to every account you make on Miraheze, and also to creating your alternate accounts while logged in to your main account.

kids.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done

Krishnaheda (talk) 15:58, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

@Krishnaheda: Unfortunately, this is X mark.svg Not done as for multiple reasons. Firstly, the wiki is not closed, so is not eligible for adoption. Secondly, it is a private wiki, so is not eligible for adoption. Your best bet would be to go Special:RequestWikiQueue on Meta, enter kidswiki in the database name field, then contact that requestor, as, presumably, the still current bureaucrat on the wiki, and ask them to appoint you as bureaucrat and administrator. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 16:24, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

Alright. How many edits should I do? --Vogand (talk) 19:18, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
You'll have to wait until a steward reopens the wiki (they'll ping you when they do). There's not really a set number, but I would think creating a few pages, categorizing appropriately some other pages, and copyediting some others would be sufficient. Dmehus (talk) 19:19, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Okay. --Vogand (talk) 19:21, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Hi @Vogand:, I will mark this as X mark.svg cannot be undertaken because of this. HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 17:43, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
@HeartsDo: so I don't have to do anything? --Vogand (talk) 11:02, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
@Vogand: Yes, as wiki has been reopened as it was because it was not inactive and you can continue to contribute on it. HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 11:54, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

isv.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: isv.miraheze.org
  • Username: Asank
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: The wiki is closed - reason no editing within 60 days. That's sadly not true because the last user was on 1 november and the last edit on 30 October. The wiki is still useful, mainly the Vikisbornik part, there are new texts added in the Sbornik:Negotove teksty article, as a repository of Interslavic texts.

Asank (talk) 16:20, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

@Asank: It's possible new user accounts being attached to a wiki aren't counted as eligible activity, depending on if all or most Special:RecentChanges activity counts. Nevertheless, I do see recent page creations as at 15 October 2020 on this wiki, so I will file a Phabricator task. There's something broken in the code. Dmehus (talk) 17:21, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
@Asank: I'm going to close this as X mark.svg Not done as this wiki should not have been closed, and have requested a steward manually reopen the wiki for you. You can track this on Phabricator at T6434. Thanks Dmehus (talk) 17:27, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
@Asank: @NDKilla: has reopened this wiki for you. Since it seems like this wiki has no active bureaucrats, I would recommend you hold a local election, taking care to take into account the local wiki's permissions elections policies. Assuming your wiki has no local permissions request policies or other election rules, you would follow global customs and conventions for such requests, which see you create an election page on that wiki, on a prominent page, stating the number and type of position(s) you're running for (i.e., administrator, bureaucrat), the name(s) of the candidate(s) running, how long the election shall run for (best practice for 5-7 calendar days), the minimum support ratio required for a successful election, and whether an election can be declared successful after the minimum timeframe if no one expresses a view (i.e., election by acclamation). Once your process has concluded (recommended to last for at least 5-7 calendar days), return to stewards' noticeboard and, in a new thread, state the wiki address, local location of the election, and a steward will assess your local election in absence of a local bureaucrat.

This request seems fine to me. A steward should review your request in the next 2-3 weeks, reopen the wiki, allowing you to contribute constructively for at least one week, and then assess your contributions to the wiki and grant rights if successful. Dmehus (talk) 17:34, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

@Superjig: This request seems fine to me, as this wiki was not manually closed, and I couldn't find any recent changes in the past 60 days. A steward should review your request in the next 2-3 weeks, reopen the wiki, allowing you to contribute constructively for at least one week, and then assess your contributions to the wiki and grant rights if successful.

  • Reason: I want to manage the wiki and add pages. For example Avangion is a creature in Athas I could add. Is not yet included in the wiki.

@Avengium: a steward should review your request as soon as they can. However, LGTM. Zppix (Meta | Sysadmin | talk to me) 13:59, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
@Avengium: This wiki is not yet closed, so cannot yet be adopted per Dormancy Policy as it is only inactive. So, while I'm closing this as X mark.svg Not done, you have a couple options. First, you can wait until it is closed, then rerequest at requests for adoption. Or, second, you can add that page for that character, which should prevent the wiki's closure, and hold a local election on the wiki. Since it seems like this wiki has no active bureaucrats, I would recommend you hold a local election, taking care to take into account the local wiki's permissions elections policies. Assuming your wiki has no local permissions request policies or other election rules, you would follow global customs and conventions for such requests, which see you create an election page on that wiki, on a prominent page, stating the number and type of position(s) you're running for (i.e., administrator, bureaucrat), the name(s) of the candidate(s) running, how long the election shall run for (best practice for 5-7 calendar days), the minimum support ratio required for a successful election, and whether an election can be declared successful after the minimum timeframe if no one expresses a view (i.e., election by acclamation). Once your process has concluded (recommended to last for at least 5-7 calendar days), return to stewards' noticeboard and, in a new thread, state the wiki address, local location of the election, and a steward will assess your local election in absence of a local bureaucrat. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 15:57, 20 November 2020 (UTC).

@R4356th: This appears to have been closed in error, possibly a lingering result of the recent technical issue. When I look at Special:Log/managewiki, I can see that @DuchessTheSponge: reopened the wiki on 25 October 2020, so it should not be eligible for adoption. You can instead requests rights on that wiki, and either a local bureaucrat will grant or a steward can be engaged where the bureaucrat is not active after a reasonable period of time. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 15:57, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
I see. Does that mean that I am allowed to make a request for adopting it after two months? Thank you. R4356th (talk) 16:19, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
@R4356th: Yes, if the wiki becomes closed again per Dormancy Policy, absolutely; however, if you look in the history, this wiki has a habit of going dormant and then being reopened by the local bureaucrat eventually, so it may not/never happen. Thus, you can contribute to the local wiki and then request local rights on the wiki, sharing joint bureaucrat rights with the existing bureaucrats. Please see the advice I gave to Avengium in the above request on holding a local permissions election, too. Dmehus (talk) 16:24, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Okay. Thank you very much for your suggestion. It also looks like John reopened the wiki, a huge thank you to him for this. R4356th (talk) 18:15, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
@R4356th: Yep, it was somewhat technical in nature, so John was able to just reopen the wiki in absence of the local bureaucrat. So you can now contribute to the wiki. If you wish to request additional tools on that wiki, you can talk to any bureaucrat on the local wiki. Dmehus (talk) 18:20, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
